Huila Province in Angola is set to construct three hydraulic dams at a cost of US$ 25m in the municipalities of Gambos, Chibia and Lubango as an emergency programme to counter drought in the region.
The Governor of Huila province, Marcelino Tyipinge, noted that the new dams project was for emergency, given that most areas had already been affected by drought. The new dams would help to harvest rainwater.
He also noted that work on the three dams will soon begin and with time, dams would be built in the municipalities of Quilenges and Chicomba.
